First Harvest of 2014 & Great Work Day!

Harvest April 26 2014Hose Hangar Install

We had an early harvest today and delivered 24 lbs. of a mix of radishes, onions, collard greens, peppers, Swiss chard and lettuce, and lettuce and more lettuce (did I mention we had a lot of lettuce!).  It was also our last Saturday of month work day and we had students from Hebron High as volunteers moving compost to raise levels in most of the beds.  There were a total of 26 people buzzing around the garden between 9:00 and Noon and some of the men (Willie, Will, Joe and Gary worked hard to get double hose hangar poles installed).  The garden is looking fabulous and we are off to a great start.

Frost in the Middle of April ! ! !


Hopefully you all were able to cover your garden plants and all the tender new plants will make it.  This will be a history making freeze if it gets as low as the weathermen are predicting.
